Frequently Asked Questions
Most frequent questions and answers regarding hospice care in Austin, TX
What does it mean to go to hospice?
Hospice is designed to give care and support to people in the final stage of life or a terminal illness. The main focus of a hospice is comfort and quality of life via pain management and therapy as opposed to finding a cure.
Does anyone survive hospice?
Some patients do leave hospice after a 6 month stay healthy enough to resume their pre-hospice activities. While this is not the usual case, it is not unheard of.
Does hospice mean death?
Hospice is designed to provide care for patients who are expected to pass within 6 months. The decision is often discussed among the patient, the patient’s family, and the patient’s doctor. Hospice does not equate to death; hospice simply exists to provide quality of life for patients who might pass in the near future.
Do hospices just stop all medications?
No. Hospices do not stop all medications when they accept a patient. Hospices supply medications to relieve the symptoms related to a terminal illness.
How long does someone stay in hospice?
The median length of hospice stay in 2015 was found to be 23 days. Depending on the patient’s specific set of conditions, their stay may be longer or shorter.
Does hospice just let you die?
Hospice does not kill people. Hospice provides care, comfort, and honor throughout the terminal illness and natural dying process. With the help of hospice medical staff, your pain will be managed so that you can enjoy the beautiful end-of-life period.
